Our temperatures have gone back from spring to winter, and having felt a cold coming on, I opted for a cosy weekend, mostly spent by the fire. So no new photos today, but I worked on a couple of older 'how-to' videos, bringing them up to the new standard. With time, I hope to replace all old tutorials...
Weave knot - revised
Twist wrap knot- revised
Also spent a wonderful hour and a half watching a video of the talk Pierre Alexis Dumas (chief creative director of Hermès) gave in Providence, RI last month. The lecture's title is 'A Journey on Silk from Art to Craft', and gives an overview on Hermès' history, scarf production and design, and goes into depth on Hermès' artist collaborations with Joseph Albers and Daniel Buren. For those who have not seen it already, here's the link:

..and hoping the weather will be back to spring soon. Feeling better tonight already, and wishing everyone a great week ahead :)
